“The Diana Camera is a simple toy camera.

It is a tool to make art that is a reaction against the refined glass optics that control the way in which we see the world around us, other than through our own eyes. Standard photographs are too sharp, too real, even super real. The world isn’t that way, and you don’t see it that way. At least I don’t.

I am having a wonderful love affair with Diana.

Because she is plastic, she is very light and easy to take everywhere. Her looks are non-offensive, which allows subjects to be much more at ease with a Diana taking pictures at them rather than a big, heavy technical marvel that looks like something the military built.

I believe the most beautiful things in the world are the most simple. I find great satisfaction in producing romantic, soft yet powerful images with a camera that costs nothing.”
